"obama has NO talent for anything" I disagree. He is a talented demagogue.
The next time these women have a stopped up drain or a leaking roof, will they seek out an "empowered" woman who "connects and communicates" or will they find someone who can actually do something?
Sadly, no, he has not changed his tune. He's destined to be a homeless bum.
When my loser nephew asked me if the city I live in, Durham, NC, had a lot of "underprivileged" people, I retorted that I didn't know what that term meant. I added that this is a prosperous city but that some people just don't take advantage of the opportunities here. The next time he used that term, I jumped down his throat and said that everybody that lives in this country is privileged.

When I was in graduate school in the mid 1970s, a conservative friend (rare in those days) said, "There's a lot of talk about people's rights but no corresponding dialogue about their responsibilities." This stuck with me and marked a turning point in my long journey from an idealistic and mushy-headed liberal to the conservative I am today. People have the right to vote and the corresponding responsibility to provide an ID.

Having spent the last several days providing documents to verify every large deposit in my bank account in order to refinance my mortgage, I find this issue to be laughable. I'm trying to borrow an amount that's half the appraised value of my house and I have an excellent credit rating. But I made the error of creating my own job and, man oh man, am I paying for it now. Thanks to Dodd-Frank, I feel like I'm going through the Spanish Inquisition. So, no, I'm not too concerned about requiring an ID for the sacred right to vote.
I voted for Brannon this morning and I'm a little disappointed. But I am now definitely all in for Tillis against Hagan.
Emma Lazarus wrote those lines in 1883, when the population of the United States was well below 100 million and we still had a frontier. The frontier was not declared closed until 1890. Until that time in history, the US had a surplus of undeveloped land and a shortage of labor. Those conditions no longer obtain. Furthermore, the US has never welcomed masses of immigrants that threatened to change the social fabric of America. The No-nothing Party of the 1850s, which put forth as a candidate a former President (Fillmore), was formed in reaction to the huge influx of Irish immigrants. Americans were concerned that those immigrants would not integrate into our society because of their Catholic faith. A couple decades later, Congress passed the Chinese Exclusion Act out of fear that the west would be overwhelmed by Chinese immigrants. Your heartfelt sentiments and your sanctimony are not based on reality.

"Most Republicans aren't familiar with Nobel prize winning authors." What a cheap shot! And it reeks of elitist conceit. Exactly how did you arrive at this conclusion? Have you or anyone else conducted a survey of "most Republicans"? And isn't it a tad presumptuous to speak for "most of us"?
When Spike Lee, a fixture at LA Lakers games, PUBLICLY stated that he didn't like it when he saw a black woman with a white man, it scarcely elicited a yawn.
